First Announcement

Meeting Location and Date

The Workshop on Modern Analytical Methods Applied to Earth, Planetary, and Material Sciences II will be held at the Wigner Research Centre for Physics on November 11–12, 2017, in Budapest, Hungary.

Purpose and Scope

METHODS 2017 follows on from the previous METHODS 2014 meeting held in Sopron, Hungary, with some of the same organizers and for which the Lunar and Planetary Institute provided similar support. The purpose of this two-day meeting is to provide an opportunity for exchange of ideas between scientists and companies working on or producing different analytical facilities that are being used in the Earth, planetary, and material sciences. This can also aid in the exchange of ideas between basic research activities and applied science.

The meeting will cover a variety of analytical methods that have been used on different samples, including geological (i.e., minerals, rocks, meteorites), biological, and industrial materials:

  • Microscopy [e.g., scanning electron microscope (SEM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM), etc.]
  • Spectroscopy [e.g., cathodoluminescence (CL), thermoluminescence (TL), electron spin resonance (ESR), Raman, etc.]
  • Mass spectrometry
  • Microprobe (SIMS)
